Why would anyone live in Burma?

I'm just curious. It seems such a messed up country, yet I know there's expats there, so my question is, what draws you to the place?

The only person I know there went there by accident. He's a member here but rarely logs in... he thought he was going to work for the Burma Oil company in the UK :D

Only other things I can think of are the beaches and the historic sites... and the girls??? Never been there, so can't comment.

When I went there in 1977 or 1978 the place had an old-world colonial charm. People were friendly and many spoke excellent English. No girls that I could find and the only beer I could find was in large hotels. Nice temples, some good food. At the time foreigners were restricted to staying in certain hotels and even to travelling in certain railway carriages. OK for a visit but I wouldn't want to live there.

I would guess that even Burma has changed a bit in 30 years. :D

    • Bangkok Airways to fly Phuket - Hat Yai route
      By Stocky · Posted
      I see that Bangkok Airways have indicated their intention to fly the Phuket - Hat Yai route starting from October 25th 2015. Phuket Gazette article Several airlines have tried flying the route, Happy Air and Nok Air couldn't make it profitable, Phuket Air did make money but the airline went under after safety issues. Bangkok Air operate with the same size aircraft as Phuket Air did, they're also pretty savvy, so fingers-crossed they prove successful.

      Daily expenses are what you make of them...could be $0, could be $100,000. Since everything is going to be paid for, you can save all of your money if you want to. Anyway...this sounds like a scam. Are you paying the agency to find a job for you?
